On June 29, Big Y will hold its first company-wide hiring event at more than 75 locations across Massachusetts and Connecticut. It’s an opportunity for anyone 18 years and older to try new skills and to be a voice for sharing innovative ideas.
“It’s More Than Food, It’s My Story” is more than a tag line. It’s what 12,000 employees at Big Y share with each other every day. Every individual has an opportunity to join a growing family of employees who are shaping their own future.
Company leadership is aware that people are eager to get back to work so they are simplifying the application process. Every store plus the distribution center will hold interviews, and hiring managers will be able to make on-the-spot job offers from 3-8 p.m. on this day. Currently, there are openings at all Big Y supermarkets, Big Y Gas and Convenience Stores, Table & Vine Fine Wines and Spirits and Big Y’s Fresh and Local Distribution Center.
Interested applicants are encouraged to apply in advance online at bigy.com/careers which also includes addresses of all locations.
All individuals hired on this day will receive a $50 gift card of their choice such as Apple, Big Y or Spotify.
Additionally, after working through the summer, every Big Y employee – including those newly hired – will receive an employee appreciation bonus in their paychecks in early September. To qualify, employees must have worked during July and August.
“A future at Big Y means more than stocking shelves. It is an opportunity for personal leadership and growth, an opportunity to belong and contribute to your own vibrant future and an opportunity to connect with others and be part of a community that cares. We stand committed to making a real difference where employees are celebrated for who they are and have a chance to share their ideas and be respected, valued and heard,” said Michael J. Galat, VP of employee services.
